Commencement 2010: Student protesters plan to take off graduation robes during Dimon's address 12 May 2010 The Take Back Commencement movement has protested the choice of JPMorgan Chase & Co. Chief Executive Officer Jamie Dimon as the 2010 Syracuse University and State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry commencement speaker. The students originally wanted the university to remove Dimon and choose another speaker. Realizing that wouldn't happen, they decided the best way to protest Dimon was by taking off their robes during his speech.
